Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Rheumatoid Arthritis Erosion Score Measured From MRI Assessments (RA-MRI ES) at Month 6 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 6 ]
    Fifteen sites in each wrist and 10 sites in each hand were assessed by a blinded and independent reader. Each site was scored from 0 to 10 (in accordance with the European League Against Rheumatism [EULAR]-Outcome Measures in Rheumatology Clinical Trials convention), with each unit increment representing 10% incremental loss of the peripheral 1 cm of articular bone. The Erosion Score is a sum of erosion scores from 50 joint sites in both hands/wrists and ranges from 0 (normal, no erosion) to 500 (worst possible erosion).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Radiographic Total Modified Sharp Score (TSS) at Month 12 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Month 12 ]
    TSS is the sum of erosion and joint space narrowing scores obtained from radiographs of the hands and feet, assessed by 2 independent readers. The joint erosion score is a summary of erosion severity in 32 joints of the hands and 12 joints in the feet. Each joint was scored, according to the surface area involved, from 0 (no erosion) to 5 (extensive loss of bone from more than one half of the articulating bone). Because each side of a foot joint was graded on this scale, the maximum erosion score for a foot joint was 10 and the maximal erosion score was 280. Joint Space Narrowing (JSN) Score summarizes the severity of JSN in 30 joints of the hands and 12 joints of the feet. Assessment of JSN for each hand (15 joints per hand) and foot (6 joints per foot), including subluxation, was scored from 0 (normal JSN) to 4 (complete loss of joint space, bony ankylosis, or luxation), with a maximum JSN score of 168. The TSS ranged from 0 (normal) to 448 (worst).
